Project Blue, Level II Project Blue, Level II

FahreS didn't seem quite content sending us one part of Project Blue. This one affects the GUI in the build box area around stations as well as the filter buttons in the map, and those top-right corner buttons as well.

Nice touches and changes by FahreS. And best of all, you don't need Part I to get Part II to work. Never seen an episode of Trek that can claim that. Wink

Get this one --and Part I, as well-- today, and bring the look of your A2 build up a couple notches.

Cool

cool, certainly gives the GUI a great look (including part 1)
#2 Doom369 2008-01-23 13:37
this looks good
#3 TiberiousKirk 2008-01-25 17:44
Does this work with moded Armada 2's also or just the original?
#4 FahreS 2008-01-26 04:03
It should work with modded Amada 2's. but some (not all) gui mods could influence this mod in a negative way. Please try if it works or not.
#5 TiberiousKirk 2008-01-26 15:12
Ok, I'll backup the files before replacing them in KA2 and B5 mods
#6 thunderfoot006 2008-11-11 21:52
What the heck are you waiting for? This significantly improves both the look and gameplay of A2. I have tried it with A2U 1.4 and several other mods in place and it works very well. This makes the GUI useful again rather than just something which clutters the screen. So, hurry up and get this installed already!
